OHU50K NOTES

This sweet move-in ready Victorian cottage was built in 1910 in the Falls Road neighborhood of Rocky Mount, NC. Falls Road developed at the turn of the century as a prestigious residential street where wealthy tobacconists, leading businessmen, mill executives, and professionals built homes. Our featured home sits off Falls Road. According to the National Register of Historic Places, an article “entitled. Your Own Interest in the Growth of Rocky Mount, encouraged people to build more houses in Rocky Mount in an effort to meet the housing shortage brought on by the increase in residents associated with railroad and private industries. The houses on the streets adjacent to Falls Road developed more heavily in the 1920s and may have been in response to the lack of housing at the time.”
The small Queen Anne cottages around West Virginia Street were most likely built either for middle class businessmen or perhaps as rentals for worker housing.
